Where are your facts that there are more people who don't take advantage of the system then do? Love to see some numbers.
Again we have a group who claim they are not able to find gainful employment. Perhaps our failing education system is a contributing factor. Perhaps it is people like yourself who pity people who continue to make poor choices in their life instead of making an effort to learn a skill that will lead them to a good paying job and wish to reward them for their lack of effort. It does take time and effort if you are not aware of the secret potion. There are Pell Grants galore, taxpayer funded for those who fell thru the so called cracks during high school that many people use to start a new endeavor and for some reason find it to difficult to attend classes religiously. Waste not want not. SSI disability is a program that is about to exhaust its funding and with numbers being enrolled finding sanctuary in this bailout program the people who are currently involved with the program receiving help, especially children, may have to go without opportunities to provide them with support and higher education all because we have older Americans who claim no one will hire them at the wage they desire. This system at the current pace is another doomed political promise no one can keep. Unless Congress says to borrow more money we do not have to hand out to people who are in need or want.
Social Security disability on verge of insolvency
by Associated Press
No one wishes to go back to the 50's. I don't know where you get that but I would be happy to return to 1980's or 90's where a dollar bought something. Wages have been stagnant or declined since then and prices have continued to skyrocket including healthcare even since Obozo Care was enacted. Again, do the math and let us know what you find.
How long will Social Security Disability be financially solvent?
With the number of boomers entering the entitlement stage of their lives and living much longer than expected will Social Security be available as promised. And what about Medicare.
As for Obozo Care, it will always be called exactly that and within a year even you faithful followers will be crying for the repeal of this asinine law. I am amazed that people on here post the reason people need to work overtime is because of low wages. Have you not noticed everything has escalated in price except income? Ever wonder why? Could it be the Asian market being able to manufacture without high labor costs? By not providing benefits? Have you ever heard of a thing called competition and the Free Market? How about Corporate America? "In Asian Countries of course."
We can give everything to people who feel they are owed something or we can expect every able bodied citizen to do their part to help themselves. Being charitable to the people who are truly in need is one thing. America does this and has for generations. Allowing people who can work to benefit from another persons labor is simply wrong and not sustainable. The message to future generations is don't worry be happy and lazy. The government will provide for your needs. We are close to the end with all these wonderful programs as we have allowed the cost to rise above any ability to pay for the programs.
If you fail to see Chicken Little running around in a frenzy screaming, "The sky is falling" any chance to survive this crisis in tact is doubtful. Please do the math and see for yourself!
rickaroohoneybooboo, and fellow Obamadontcare pom pom shakers!
Darlings, please let me help you make sense. Oblamadontcare does not help everyone that cannot afford insurance premiums. There are millions of families that have health insurance plans approved by the big dunce, provided by their employer that covers the employee at a somewhat reasonable cost. The problem is the benefit extended to the family thru the plan. The cost is prohibitive to the couples and so they will continue to live their lives without health insurance as Obamadontcare does not provide subsidies to these folks who have an approved Obamadontcare healthcare plan available to them. Nothing has changed for these families. Let me correct myself. Something has changed. The cost for the insurance has gone up. The interesting question is if one spouse in a family has health coverage and the other does not do they have to pay the penalty? You folks are either living in a vacuum or just like alpo, you hold your fingers in your ears and continue to mumble, la la la, I can't hear you. Yes indeed a very close relative to the ostrich! Only not a rare breed at all. And the scary part is that they continue to breed at alarming rates.
And in the year 2013, with a computer based enrollment system, the health care exchange, paid for entirely by the United States TAXPAYER, for some unknown reason no one can provide real time enrollment figures for this wonderful Obamadontcare. Now how can this be. We have a national debt clock that calculates everything that affects our daily lives, present & future but this White House Bozo Obama cannot provide any numbers concerning enrollment whether partially completed or completed applications. So just how bad of an idea could this legacy to the Great Gazoo be? This is all about ego folks, not economics. Take your fingers out of your ears and pay very close attention. Your future depends on it.
"I won't vote for the a change until I know what the proposed change is."
This blog is a laugh a day. Sometimes more. I'll bet if the always gorgeous Nancy Pelosi told you the only way you will know what is in the bill is to vote for it you would be falling all over the ravenous Democratic beauty. Instead you won't vote for a change until you know what it is. Anyone else find this ironic?
We won't have to wait long for this thing referred to as Obamadon'tcare to implode and be repealed. B.O. is so full of himself and other things he doesn't have the wisdom or foresight to see there is no light at the end of the tunnel.
Here is a proper replacement for this disaster. Go to school. Stay in school. Graduate. Go to a tech school and learn a trade or go to college and earn a degree in a field that is in demand. Get a job. Show up every day. Work hard. Pay your taxes.
KISS Keep It Simple Stupid
I bet you're a big hit at parties!!! And the ladies must sit and listen with such fascination too? Your logic and reasoning is well,,,,,,,,
Are you the guy who penned,,,
I know you are but what am I?
Let me know when you turn 12 and I'll bake you a cake.
I am concerned about your ability lately to attract viewers to your toons that in turn create people who comment. Perhaps it is because you don't deal with the true train wrecks our country is experiencing? How about you grow a sack and get down to what is really wrong? Just a thought from a concerned reader. I would hate to see someone else hired to chose all the pretty colors!
Perhaps a good one would be to draw Barrie O throwing Billions up in the air during a Cat 5 hurricane showing how taxpayers funded our new Health Care Exchanges and what we are going to receive in return?
Lately your material has been such a non event.
Lets get the party started!!!
"NOW, the Republicans are trying to fulfill their OBJECTIVES of causing the failure of President Obama"
That has to be the funniest statement of the year. Or as Chet would say,,,, Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!!
carlb Just a heads up,,,,, Our dear President Oblamama needs little to no help causing his own failure. If you would take the time to listen to what comes from his mouth, he properly demonstrates his inability to lead and his constant ignorance or in his case stupidity of known facts or historical events. He does get high marks in name calling and creating conflict though.
inquiringmind, perhaps you are unaware of what creates this debt we acquire as a nation. I think the point of all this is to refrain from our spending that would make drunken sailors blush. Once it is spent it then becomes additional debt. Get it??? or not so much,,,,
That is what Obamamama will be singing as his theme song soon.
It's been fun kids. I don't get to come out & play every day like some but I do love you all like a brother,,,,, maybe a sister!
Gotta go, something bout a pig in the ground. Toodles!!!!!
How cute you have a rat friend,,, aawwwww
Hey Rat Boy,, how bout u tell all the nice people how this bama care thing gets enough rat cheese to pay for itself? I'm trying to make it easy for you. Think in terms of 1 lb blocks of cheap cheddar. That should make it easy for you? Maybe? I know, it's asking a lot from a rat.
As for Sissy, he rocks pink and a bow much better than I could. Yeah I'm jealous. No matter if he just dresses that way or swings from both trees, that's his business. Not mine. This Obamadon'tcare is a different story.
"I thought you wanted to be intellectual. You are making a lot assumptions in your arguments, with no facts. Have fun talkin' to yourself.
Gas went to $4/gallon under President Bush."
Perhaps you are seeing things. Who said Bush wasn't president when gas hit $4.00 per gallon? It sure wasn't me. Hey tifisoeieio, I am really worried about you. Tell me, what color elephants are you seeing right now. I can't help you if you won't let me try.
You and ole mcdonuld have sumthin in common. You misspell talking and so does he! Now ain't that a coincidence? EIEIO
